Hove Park Miniature Railway has now closed due to the current epidemic. Please see the posts below for all published information.

UPDATE THURSDAY 19th MARCH 2020:

Dear all,
 
Following last night’s annoucement from the Government regarding School closures, we have made the extremely difficult decision to suspend all public operations until further notice.
We have duty of care to all who visit our little railway and our members – health and wellbeing is of upmost importance.
 
Any updates regarding this difficult time can be found either here on our Facebook page or on our website.

We are extremely sorry for any inconvenience caused.
 
HPR.”

UPDATE MONDAY 16th MARCH 2020:

“At the moment all of our running days are still planned to be going ahead, however, we will be following the Government’s and Public Heath England’s advice on Coronavirus. This means that if the current situation changes, running days could be cancelled at short notice. If this is the case, messages will be posted on our social media so journeys are not wasted.

Where track days do go ahead (hopefully all of them!) Extra precautions will be taken, especially with regards to the sanitising of the passenger cars.

At the moment none of our members are reporting any symptoms of the virus, if they are they will be advised not to attend the railway until they are better.
We would like to remind everyone that if you feel unwell it is important that you DO NOT attend the railway until you are fully better. There will always be another running day that you can attend.

We would also like to remind you to wash your hands if possible before visiting the railway and definitely after visiting. This is due to surfaces being dirty and multiple surfaces that will have been touched by others.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us, either by sending us a Facebook message or by filling out the contact form that can be found on our website”

We are still planning to operate on all publically advertised running days for this season. A list of dates can be found here.
